This is the "DW", and my favorite words to hear are "road trip". I'm ready within 30 mins
And so far I think I'm a good wife, I do everything I can to support my hubby, except where bugs or frogs are concerned, but otherwise he has traded me yet, nor would I ever trade him
So hubby when is the next "road trip" I'm ready

Lucky Guy

Life's too short to be unhappy. When I was with my ex life was miserable. Whatever I said or did was wrong. I could say the sun would rise in the east and she would want to argue about it. I dealt with that for 8 years and finally had enough. Divorce is expensive but what is that compared to a life wasted by being unhappy?
I stumbied onto my high school sweetheart and we wound up getting married. That was 28 years ago. She had 3 little girls at the time so I wound up with an instant family. My wife is the most spectacular woman I have ever met. She loves me, we don't fight, she's a great cook, we have so much in common, she handles the financial end and does a great job at it, and she is still drop dead gorgeous.
As far as the MH, she drives and I do all the maintenance. When it comes time to back it in we have a set of two way voice actuated radios with head sets that we use. Once the coach is in place she turns off the key and says she's done. We are old hands at having RV's. She had experience with cabover campers and I had a MH prior to our getting back together. Since then we have had four MHs, a 'C' and 3 "As". The latest is a 30" Storm gasser that sleeps only 2.
She even loves our 70 Chevelle and hammers it a lot harder than I do.
We do our best to spoil each other and it seems to work for us. I can't imagine being with another woman and she feels the same about other men. I'm a lucky guy and I'm fortunate enough to realize it. I have 4 months before I retire and can't wait to spend some time with her seeing some new things.

It seems to me that some people get pretty wrapped up in looking for that perfect mate when they really should be looking for the one that is perfect for them.

Sorry Mick and MrSchwarz

They came a day early. Not sure yet where were going. But from what I see it doesn't make a difference.

Some time ago, I found the "perfect wife"...
She was absolutely beautiful, could whip up a gormet meal from scratch in 5 minutes, never complained about anything, catered to me hand and foot, allowed me to spend any amount of time out in the shop and only "bothered" me to bring me a plate of food or something cool to drink.
She kept the house immaculate, always tried to find ways to live well but furgally, was always ready for any adventure and was wonderful in bed.
...I was really really sad when she went back to her husband.

For me it was the other way around.
Her ex was really sad that she found a new husband
